You have booked your accommodation at the Plitvice Holiday Resort! Excellent, we look forward to your arrival! To make your experience complete, we have prepared a small guide to attractions worth visiting during your holiday at the Plitvice Holiday Resort.
The road to the Plitvice Lakes is beautiful in itself. As you approach the national park, the nature that surrounds the road invites you to enjoy it with each kilometre. If you are arriving from the north, take a break from driving and refresh on the limestone rocks of the magical Rastoke. While the mills diligently grind corn and wheat, make yourself comfortable in the early morning by the Vilina kosa waterfall, which is known for the legend of the fairies of Rastoke.
In the Plitvice Lakes National Park you will feel like a true adventurer and explorer. But fear not, this is not a new Indiana Jones sequel and no matter how unreal all those tame natural beauties in front of you may seem, this is your real life. Enjoy it!
Fans of archaeology and speleology will be delighted by the Caves of Barać where stone axes and bracelets from the 7th century BC were found, while lovers of legends will enjoy a hidden cave on Lisna Hill, allegedly built by giants who lived in it. The lake called Veliko jezero, situated near the Buk waterfall of Rastoke, disappears every few years: if you are lucky, you may see this miraculous “bioreactor” surrounded by endemic and some yet undiscovered species.
Peek into the ethno village Korana, protected by UNESCO. With its traditional houses, river of the same name and crystal clear waterfalls, it looks like a place from a fairy tale.
If you are going north after your stay at the Plitvice Holiday Resort, visit the Aquatica freshwater aquarium in Karlovac. Children, young people, aquarists, scientists, but also everyone else, will especially enjoy the Karlovac Aquarium which proudly shows the richness of Croatian river flora and fauna in the city on the four rivers – Kupa, Korana, Mrežnica and Dobra.
In the direction of the south and southwest, the National Parks of Northern Velebit, Paklenica and Kornati welcome you. Another interesting sight worth visiting is certainly Kuterevo, where you can get acquainted with the importance of protecting the bear habitat, and see up close orphan bears.
No matter which route to the Plitvice Holiday Resort you choose and which attractions you decide to visit, one thing is for sure – an unforgettable holiday guaranteed!
